Demands for greater bandwidth and speed are driving a global increase in fiber to the home (FTTH). However, this demand for network infrastructure does not always come paired with a corresponding increase in fiber expertise. In the real world, fiber is installed in harsh environments and is vulnerable to a number of faults. The need for testing is real, but to achieve fast and profitable deployments, workflow efficiency must be addressed. Charlene Roux, global product line manager for OTDR with VIAVI, walks webinar attendees through recommendations for successful, consistent deployment and maintenance of FTTH/PON networks without requiring special training or expertise.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
